Huge white flowers with a decadent perfume and plenty of staying power. A great cut flower choice.
Lilium 'Zambesi' is an O.T. hybrid is also known as an Orienpet Lilium It is a cross between an Oriental Lily and a Christmas or Trumpet Lily.
It is easy to create an indulgent display of colour with O.T Liliums. They are gorgeous in the garden and perfect for cut flowers too.
Oriental Lilies add glamour and fragrance to the garden. These lilies are also tough, and able to withstand our hot summers. They are best planted in a permanent position where, as they establish they will become more and more floriferous.
It is a good idea to fertilise your O.T. Lilies, they are hungry bulbs and this will give you the best blooms. Adding an organic fertiliser when you first see growth, then again as they are fading is ideal. If you are growing your Lilies in pots, fertiliser is even more important and in this case a slow release pellet such as Thrive or a liquid fertiliser. Water to establish, and keep moist in active growth for best results.
In warmer climates, it is a good idea to grow your O.T. Liliums in part shade or morning sun, then your flowers will last longer.
